I’m really sad I’ve never been a bridesmaid in a wedding with traditional clothes.
I really don’t like any talk of ISIS that omits the 9 years that tribesmen in western and northern Iraq were fighting them and that acts as if all sunni love them now. Like this shit did not happen overnight it was over almost a decade of fighting and assassination and kidnapping and extortion. And now people that were ignoring what was going on this part of the country the whole time are saying that people just “let” it happen.
Around 8 years ago I started a blog about Iraqi refugees and one day I get an email from this guy about a post I made about how other arab countries were deporting them and not taking them in and basically says “lol I guess they’ve finally gotten their revenge on you” and links me a story about how arab workers in Iraq during the Iran Iraq war were sent home without being paid properly. Which a)the refugees are not responsible for what the government does, dictatorship and all b)their case is different in that they are being sent back to certain death. I send this guy a reply telling him that and he comes back with “oh well the Iraqis leaving are all rich and they’ll be fine.” Um, no.
Anyways I am writing this right now because this dude keeps trying to add me to every social media thing he joins and he did it again today I srsly can’t.
